Marvel is already working on multiple Disney+ spin-offs from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Ryan Coogler's Proximity Media will produce the shows, according to reports

In case the title of the new Black Panther movie didn’t make it clear, Marvel Studios isn’t in the Wakanda business for the short term.

Following the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever this week, Promixity Media — the production company co-owned by the movie’s writer/director Ryan Coogler — is already developing “multiple series” based in Wakanda, according to Variety. That’s in addition to both its involvement in Ironheart, the upcoming Disney+ spin-off from Wakanda Forever already scheduled to debut Fall 2023, as well as the already announced six-episode Wakanda Forever podcast series.

Coogler’s involvement with Marvel might not end there, although he’s personally unsure what’s next for him, saying, “I can tell you definitively I have no idea what I’m doing next.” That said, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is definitely invested in staying in the Ryan Coogler business, telling Variety that expanding the Black Panther world without him “wouldn’t be the preference.”

Feige was willing to shut down one line of speculation, however, saying, “in all honesty, there’ve been no conversations” with the director about the next Avengers movie. “We’ve not spoken to him about Secret Wars,” he confirmed.

So, just the Disney+ spin-offs for now, then — spin-offs that, according to Wakanda Forever producers Nate Moore, might be more expansive than it first seems. “There are no shortage of ideas, let’s put it that way,” he says about what’s coming, telling Variety that some ideas include established characters, but others feature characters “that would be completely new.”

No matter what, it seems as if Marvel is committed to maintaining a presence in its fictional African kingdom — something that can only be seen as a good thing for the company and fans alike.
